Since beginning a comprehensive writing course with The Writers Bureau in 2001, my articles and short stories have been published in a variety of magazines in the UK. The magazines include Heritage, Scottish Field, The Lady and People’s Friend.
In 2005 two of my short stories were included in quite different anthologies. The first story, A Ghost at the Vicarage. was in an International Anthology, published in June, while the second appeared in Café Ole – Too Hot To Handle, which was launched in Glasgow.
My first novel, The Trojan Project, a thriller, was published at the end of May 2008. It was followed by Divorcees.Biz and Only Twelve Days. Recently, I have put together twelve of my published short stories in an anthology; it is called Twelve of the Best.
When I can find the time, I also review books for newbooks a bi-monthly magazine informing the public of new books on the shelves.
At the present, I am a member of the Society of Authors, the Society of Women Writer’s and Journalists and The Edinburgh Writer’s Club, as well as being an Associate Member of NAWG (National Association of Writers Groups).
